You Said You'D Be There

Poem By David Cesefske

I was the boy with a basketball waiting for you to teach me how, you were the same dissapointment you were then the same as you are now-
I was looking for your car, whenever i heard any vehicle sound, always counting on Dad showing up, but you never came around-
I was the innocent child misssing his Dad, mourning for something he never truly had-
I was hurt, i had pain, feeling my world caveing in i felt showered with all the rain-
Too much to take, i cant stay dry, bursting in the inside on the outside id cry-
You said you'd be there, you said u cared, you never showed up this cant be repaired-
You broke my heart, you betrayed my trust-
With your broken Promises always staying true, im Pulling it together, Making it fine without you-
A simple explanation explaining why, would of helped to prevent all the tears that were cried-
But im here now dad, im not alone, im 21 now and im completely grown-
Im a man youll never be, living sucess you'll never see, got a future with a family, found God now i am complete-
